George Michael is the latest addition to the Royal Mint’s Music Legends series

The Royal Mint have shared the brand new coin in tribute to the late musician, George Michael.

He is the latest addition to the Music Legends series, which has previously commemorated the likes of Queen, Elton John and David Bowie, as its aim is to pay homage to British artists.

Sandra Deiana, the coin's designer, explained she wanted "a detailed portrait that captured his charismatic expression. I was particularly thinking of his iconic sunglasses". Alongside an image of Michael wearing his glasses, the song contains an engraving of the refrain from his 1987 solo track, "Faith".

George Michael Entertainment said it was "deeply honoured" by the tribute from the Royal Mint, adding that Michael himself would have been "enormously proud and genuinely touched that a national institution should have decided to pay tribute to his memory in this way".
